Rodrigo Duterte’s pivot to China is in bible prophecy?


In a surprising turning of events, bible prophecy has been unfolding in our eyes when the President of the Philippines Rodrigo Duterte started to change the course of the country’s foreign policy specifically his move to befriend with China.

Duterte’s turning to China and veering away from the Philippines’ long-time ally the United States have blown away the minds other nations’ leaders on the sudden shift of decision. Duterte’s war on drugs, killing thousands , caught the attention of Washington and afterward criticized the newly elected him by the administration of US President Barack Obama. Thus, Duterte’s responded by aligning the Philippine’s foreign policy to China.

The friendship between the Philippines and United States has a long history. As a matter of fact, the two countries had built a bilateral agreement of mutual defense since 1951. But the rise of Duterte has opened the floodgates of questions still remain unanswered in connection to his honest intent in directing the country for brighter future.

Duterte’s tirade on US toned down a little bit when Donald Trump won the election. In March , Duterte even assured that they are “Okay” with Trump. But Duterte’s inclination to tie up with China and even with Russia has implications in bible prophecy.

When it comes to the future events foretold in the bible, Revelation 9:16 cannot be forgotten at all as it speaks of an Eastern military force consisting of 200 million soldiers. Revelation 16:12 provides a clearer picture of this army “kings of the east”, noting that the writer used plural “kings”, a multinational force. The rise of China as a military superpower continues to magnetize its neighboring countries to be aligned economically and politically. There’s also Russia, which many bible scholars believe, mentioned in Ezekiel 38, which will be part of the mighty “kings of the east” that will invade Israel in the last days.

It is not an accident that a unique president of the Philippines could switch side as quickly as we have seen. In just less than a year, Revelation 16:12 is slowly taking place. Absolutely, we are in the last days. Nobody can stop the second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ!

Then they gathered the kings together to the place that in Hebrew is called Armageddon. (Revelation 16:16)

He who testifies to these things says, “Yes, I am coming quickly.” Amen. Come, Lord Jesus. (Revelation 22:20)
